Want to party crash the Oscars? Take a lobster

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - If you want to crash the glitziest party of all, the Oscars, here's a tip from a professional: Show up at the theatre, dressed as a chef carrying a live lobster, looking really concerned.

So says Alex Mamlet, one of America's self-professed top party crashers, who turned his exploits into an award-winning short film "Kid Protocol."

"A never-fail technique is showing up in a chef outfit with a food item, looking really concerned. Security will always let you in," Mamlet said in an interview. "The more outrageous the food item, the more likely they are to let you in."

Mamlet, who has hobnobbed with everyone from director Stephen Spielberg to actor Tom Cruise, says he has used the chef routine with plates of bananas and exotic fruits and, on more than one occasion, a live lobster.
